Low Cost OEM Laser Diode Modules
Modules of the Smallest Design
The absolutely smallest modules in the world contain the laser diode, drive electronics, and optics all in a metal housing. They can be operated directly with 3 VDC without additional electronics. The integrated APC (automatic power control) electronics allow the laser diode to be operated automatically in the working point with the desired output power, increasing the life expectancy of the module.
The smallest modules have a diameter of only 3.3 mm at a length of just 7 mm.
In total, dot lasers with a collimated or focusable beam at 635 nm and 650 nm are available for selection in twelve different kinds of housings. Line lasers are also available.
LC LMD modules are the right choice if you are looking for an easy and inexpensive solution in large quantities. This simple technology can be integrated into your system without a problem.
Typical applications for these laser diode modules in consumer products, such as in hardware store equipment and household appliances, include use as target and alignment aids, e.g. in sewing machines, and as emitters in light barriers or optical sensors. They are designed for use where very little space is available and cost is a deciding factor when purchasing a product.
